Comments:
This beach is relatively unused except for surfers given the steep slope and the large rock, but there is a well compressed path at the top of the slope. Sunset was very pretty.
Summary:
Path at top of slope of rocky shore is well compressed. Sunset was very pretty, and surfers were in high numbers today. Two surfers came in along the path while we walked out. Returned in the dark after sunset alone.
